Have you noticed anything new in SiteBuilder3 lately? We recently added some brand new themes to our fully customizable library!

The Webs design and development teams are always gathering user feedback from our support team to gauge what people are looking for in our website builder. They take that information and periodically create new themes to give users even more flexibility when they create a personal portfolio, group site, or small business website.

The goal with this group of themes was to give viewers modern experiences using the latest in HTML5 and CSS3 (whether they know what those are or not!) To see the new themes for yourself, log in to your Webs account and select a website to edit. In the top right corner, click “Theme” and scroll through the options. READ MORE

When it comes to web design, there has historically been a fair amount of hand-wringing about keeping everything on the page “above the fold” — in the space on the screen that you see before you have to scroll down.

We’re halfway through the week, which means it’s time for another great Example Site created by a Webs user!

This week’s site is Stockyards Saloon in San Antonio, TX. As a popular live music venue, Stockyards is likely to get a lot of questions from their visitors. It’s heartening to see that they have not fallen into the “leave them wanting more” mentality that many marketers adopt for their websites.

The rationale behind this practice of under-informing your audience is that if you provide all the information your visitors need right there on your website, they have no reason to contact you directly. The thinking there being that if you can just get someone on the phone, you can quickly sell them on what you offer and turn them into a customer. READ MORE
